Since we are gardeners, most of us are also cooks. Perhaps sharing recipes and ideas would be enjoyable to the members. Ah, the thrill of finding a new recipe for zucchini!

Nice. I happened to find a thread here that someone stated titled What are you cooking tonight ? ( or close to that statement) seems it did not take off. I love making zucchini fritters with mine. And I have an awesome Zucchini bread recipe I use. And experimented with the bread recipe, it lasts a year frozen with no side effects what so ever. Usually I make up to 6 loafs when I do.

I actually thought fritters could be frozen easy also, stacked with wax paper between, and in a good freezer bag. Steamed up slowly to thaw.

Recipe threads sound like a great idea.

I recall that there are a number of recipes for zucchini cakes. Something along the same line as carrot cake.

As I was making the zucchini fritters the other day, and your squeezing the juice out of the pulp. I was thinking what a waste the liquid down the drain. Next time I am saving it to toss later into something.

I know someone on here who would turn Courgettes into slurry (Zuchini) to you US folk. We like it raw, sliced on salad .....oh yes we DO @zigs - when I don't fancy cooking

I like the idea of a recipe forum, but maybe we start with a thread on it and then if it's popular we go from there?

If you want to get a thread started on it @marlingardener, that would be great :D.

Funnily enough, I was given 3 GIANT courgettes the other day so could do with these recipes myself :LOL:

I am so sorry I started this. Obviously it irritates Knapicius; I mentioned zucchini as a joke and it took off; and frankly, I think I made a big mistake by asking if we could have a recipe/cooking forum. Perhaps we should just let this idea die.

Wow. Not sure how you got I was irritated. Its just much easier if you have one "Cooking/Recipe" thread devoted to that, so folks have one to view collectively. And I don't get how either one is a "joke". did not find it funny in the least, did not find any emotional connection to either one, funny, sad or any other emotion.

Wow. I'm surprised at the animosity. I guess I found out why we don't have a recipe section.

It does seem odd that there's so much discussion about growing food but not much about what to do with it.

I get it, re-read the whole thread again, still don't get why "someone " flew off the handle like that. whatever.

Last summer were dark days for the Forums. I was new then and found it particularly hard. Certain people decided to depart and things are better now.

I am already on several cooking forums for many years. And I get an awesome Foodie magazine. So I am so good to go with recipes. Even stopped buying cookbooks years ago, have plenty. So if a cooking tread flies, or does not fly pays me no mind either way. Been cooking for 56 years, not too much I can't make. Its hard when we go to restaurants to pick something new that I can't figure out how its made. Like trying new stuff.

Each year we seem to have one crop that really produces, tomatoes last year, beans the year before etc. So we try to find different ways to store and consume product.

What do you do with say 300 pounds of green beans?

Basically what we did.
I am not the type of cook that likes to muck up good veggies with sauces etc. Nice good nutrition green beans are awesome by themselves. That thing they do at Thanksgiving with the mushroom sauce just turns my stomach. To each its own. BTW, they are a nice addition, chopped up in some homemade soup.

Just ran across an interesting process with bacon I am going to do. Take raw bacon strips, freeze them flat, then put them in a food processor till they crumble, says 18 pulses. Then mix the raw crumbles in meatballs, or meatloaf etc. Neat idea I think.
